Brilliant. . . . Lewis has given us a spectacular account of two great men who faced up to uncertainty and the limits of human reason. William Easterly, Wall Street Journal
Forty years ago, Israeli psychologists Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky wrote a series of breathtakingly original papers that invented the field of behavioral economics. One of the greatest partnerships in the history of science, Kahneman and Tverskys extraordinary friendship incited a revolution in Big Data studies, advanced evidence-based medicine, led to a new approach to government regulation, and made much of Michael Lewiss own work possible. In The Undoing Project, Lewis shows how their Nobel Prizewinning theory of the mind altered our perception of reality.
